Strained



I'm wearing:

1. Biker jacket made of belts, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M.
2. Sheer skull print t-shirt, from Codes Combine.
3. Super skinny jeans, from H&M.
4. Dale ox blood milled leather lace-up boots, from Frank Wright.
5. Rings, from H&M.

The dictionary definition for strained refers to a not relaxed or comfortable atmosphere, situation or relationship; something tense or uneasy. Have you ever felt something like that? At the moment, I surely am, in different aspects of my life. I'm feeling sort of forgotten by some of the people I love most and that makes me nervous, uneasy. I feel strained.

It's awful, because I can't really blame anybody, not even myself. I think it's just how life works, people grow apart and it hurts. But, I'm really hoping, the relationships are strong enough to survive this rough patch, at least the important ones; of course, there are some situations that are stressing me out but I can't really do much about them, so I'll try my best to cope with those to still stand tall at the end of the day.

I thought a lot about feeling strained and how that relates to the jacket I'm wearing. If you look at it properly, I think it might be inspired on a straitjacket and, twisted and everything, I truly like the idea. That's why I really love Maison Martin Margiela as a design firm; once you get their high concepts, you start to appreciate them and, eventually, fall for them, like I do. The skulls on the t-shirt and all the knots on the boots seemed appropriate with the subject. What do you think? You like?

// La definición de diccionario para "strained" o "tenso" en español se refiere a una atmósfera, situación o relación no relajada o cómoda; algo intranquilo. ¿Alguna vez se han sentido así? Yo sí, todo el tiempo, recientemente, en distintos aspectos de mi vida. Me siento un poco olvidado por algunas personas que quiero mucho y eso me pone nervioso, intranquilo. Me siento tenso.

Es terrible, porque no puedo culpar a alguien realmente, ni a mí mismo. Creo que es sólo como funciona la vida, la gente se aleja y duele. Pero, espero que, las relaciones sean lo suficientemente fuertes como para sobrevivir este bache, al menos las importantes; claro que hay algunas situaciones que me generan estrés pero no puedo hacer mucho al respecto, así que daré mi mejor esfuerzo con esas para aún mantenerme fuerte y de pie al final de la jornada.

Pensé mucho en sentirme tenso y cómo se relaciona con la chamarra que estoy usando. Si se fijan bien, creo que puede estar inspirada en camisas de fuera y, retorcido y lo que quieran, amo esa idea. Es por eso que me encanta Maison Martin Margiela como firma de diseño; una vez que logras entender sus conceptos tan complejos, empiezas a apreciarlos y, eventualmente, enamorarte de ellos, como yo. Las calaveras en la playera y los nudos de las botas se sintieron apropiados con el tema. ¿Qué opinan, les gusta?
Love always,
Hen.

    1. Thanks Lenny! I really loved that collaboration. It was a little hard to digest at first but once I understood where it was coming from, everything seemed amazingly cool.
